    Sylvaneth Wyldwood Query

    Hi I had a game against a friend last night and he queried the rules for my Sylvaneth Wyldwood that I had never came up against before. He was playing Stormcast. He wanted to teleport stuff in but said he couldn't because I had spread my Sylvaneth out a bit and had a few trees spread about. He seemed to think the Sylvaneth Wyldwoods are classed as part of my army therefore they are my 'UNITS' and therefore he could not teleport within 7" of them. I had never considered them as units, just scenery. But he said they were part of my army. Therefore he classed them as an enemy unit. I think they are just scenery? Anyone else have an opinion on this? Thanks Simon

    Hobby Goals You'd Like To Achieve

    Have a few and they always seem just out of reach as I keep buying more!!!! but... 1. Finish my Sylvaneth Army. Only have 9 to paint (although one is Alarielle so that may take some time) 2. Get my Mortal Nurgle army going, have nearly 2000pts (most of it still boxed) 3. Buy, Build and paint 2000pts of Spiderfang Grots (have some) 4. Buy, Build and paint 2000pts of Death (have some) 5. Stop buying more than I can paint! Hmmm thats a start I suppose

    SC or Sylvaneth, if you had to choose.

    Well I have played Sylvaneth since getting back into Warhammer a year ago. I love them and have a 50/50 success rate. I have friends who play Stormcast and they love them, but what other people say may not work for you. Whats your gut feeling? if that fails then you need…………. THE RULE OF COOL (may not work for everyone but its my go to rule) Look at the figures for each possible faction and when 1 figure leaps at you and screams I AM COOL YOU MUST PAINT ME more than any other thats the army. Job done. When I started my friends were already playing and I had watched a game or two and thought yeah I haven't played for a long time (had Skaven and Dark Elf armies many moons ago) , and decided to restart. I went onto GW site and looked at figures. After 20 minutes I saw Kurnoth Hunters and thought SOLD. I knew nothing about them, skills, traits etc just decided by the figures. And now I love playing them. I have just recently done the same again. Had a look and decided I loved the look of Putrid Blightkings, so I have now started a Nurgle army. Even my daughter is getting in on the act and recently decided she wanted a small army. I asked which one, she said "They look ace I want them (pointing at a big spider), so I get to build a small Spiderfang Grot army too. To be fair I don't think there is a right or wrong answer for this. You will have fun whatever

    Let's Chat Sylvaneth

    I would do Treelord Ancient and probably Durthu (high in points but if you get a big hit he could potentially do 36 damage in one attack!) Kurnoths - Do you prefer shooting or close combat? Bows have excellent range but the scythes are really nice in combat. Never used Swords. but will try them soon. I would do 3 Bows and 3 Scythes, that way you can try them out I have never user spite revenants so can't really answer that I have only been playing for 10 months so others may have better advice Regards Simon

    Let's Chat Sylvaneth

    Let's Chat Sylvaneth

    Drycha has been in my army since I started playing Sylvaneth. And usually I played flutterflies. played her at the weekend and plonked her right in the middle of the table and let loose. I managed to get a hit on all but 2 of my mates units. He then doubled his efforts to kill her. Her flutterflies killed two hero's and a whole unit while weakening a lot of other units. She got killed but by Turn 5 all his army was killed. I doubt she will stay at 280 points though.

    Gnarlroot wording question

    If you look on the Warhammer Community site in the Age of Sigmar Spotlight - Sylvaneth Part 6 under the Take ample advantage of Roused by Magic. section There is this quote: Let’s start with the obvious: the Gnarlroot Wargrove battalion, a perennial favourite, enables Treelord Ancients, Branchwyches andBranchwraiths to cast and unbind two spells each, making it perfect for leveraging Roused by Magic. As one example, a Gnarlroot Wargrove list with Alarielle, a Treelord Ancient, two Branchwyches, and a Loremaster can cast 10 spells in a round. Hope that helps

    Let's chat : Maggotkin of Nurgle

    I find beginning an army is always such a rush, thinking about colour schemes etc. Then testing stuff to see what you get. Still working on a list for Nurgle but I started playing around with colours (in-between finishing my other army). And this is where I am so far.
